Whistleblower Attorney Bragged About Getting Security Clearances For “Guys With Child Porn Issues”
As we learn more about the apparatus behind the effort to impeach President Trump, questions about the Democratic operative attorney representing a CIA whistleblower at the heart of the inquiry have emerged.
On Thursday it emerged that the attorney, Mark Zaid (linked to Clinton, Schumer and John Podesta), tweeted “We will get rid of him,” in reference to President Trump, followed weeks later with the tweet “#coup has started” in support of fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who refused to enforce an Executive Order banning the admission of refugees from certain countries.
In response to his anti-Trump tweets, Zaid said on Friday: “I was referring to a completely lawful process of what President Trump would likely face as a result of stepping over the line, and that particularly whatever would happen would come about as a result of lawyers.”
“The coup comment referred to those working inside the Administration who were already, just a week into office, standing up to him to enforce recognized rules of law.” -Mark Zaid
Zaid is the founder and director of the James Madison Project, which still lists Clinton campaign manager John Podesta as a member of its board in a hidden area of the website(archive here).
What Zaid hasn’t addressed is why his alleged YouTube channel ‘liked’ videos about “Disney Girls,” and why he enjoys going to children’s theme parks alonebased on his social media history.
On Friday, Twitter users pointed out that Zaid oddly bragged about helping “guys with child porn issues” obtain government clearances in response to a February thread about former Trump aide Rob Porter, who was fired following allegations of domestic abuse.
Why would the whistleblower’s lawyer brag about this? https://t.co/R8Wz9s81FL

And while everyone is entitled to legal representation, why would Zaid, who allegedly enjoys ‘Disney kids,’ brag about getting clearances for pedophiles?
And people wonder why the Department of Defense has a massive pedophile problem.
It truly boggles the mind!
